    This show is too bitter for me to swallow.. I won't be viewing in past this season.

    I hate how every little thing has to have the drama pumped up to 1000, and equate to be a mass calculation to kick others off the show.

    And screw Walmart..

    Yes, what we loved most about it in the beginning was that there was no drama or manipulation or product placement.

    The Walmart thing has been creeping up for a while now but this was ridiculous.

    I've only watched this season and the previous season. But during last season they also mentioned Walmart during every episode. If they are paying and supplying them the food, then I understand them advertising Walmart like they do. And many people do not associate Walmart with food. But the grocery section in the two Walmarts near me actually have a good selection of meats and produce.

    Ugh is right! She is 90% of the reason I just can't watch anymore. The last two episodes I just FF through to the end to see who was eliminated. If the day should come that she is eliminated I'll go back and watch that episode. If that day doesn't come, I'm 100% done with this show. So many who were so much better than her have come and gone.

    The other 10% is how completely ridiculous they have gotten with the drama in general, and the silly rules they've added that further to drama it up. It used to be such a nice cooking contest to give people a chance to learn a lot and earn something special and meaningful to them.

    I'm hoping that she wins or at least makes it to the Final two. She is still my favorite contestant and has made the show more interesting this year.

    But then most reality shows want people with conflicting personalities since that typically translates to better ratings.

    Krissi is such an ugly person, more on the inside than outside ... and that's saying something. Why would you want someone like that representing your brand? If she wins, I'm done with MC.

    Krissi's from Philly right? What is it about that place that turns people so ugly? I spent a couple of decades going to NY giant games (sitting near the visiting fans section) and Philly fans stood out from all others. There were always way more fights and general fan ugliness whenever the Eagles were in the stadium. It wasn't just the proximity of the city's or just the rivalry either. Fans from Philly just seemed to revel in being nasty and often blatantly racist. They are so angry, they regularly fight with each other, something I never saw from any other teams fans. Krissi seems to fit right in with that bunch!

    Another week with good ole Krissi!

    This show is so blatant with its editing. This is my season, but I've got it down. Team challenge? First, one team is doing great! The other team is doing poorly. :-( But amazingly, team 2 turns it around! Yay! and wins the challenge!

    As soon as Blue team rocked the apps, it was obvious who was going to win the challenge.

    Ugh! I didn't watch again, instead FF'ing through to the end to see who left, but was disappointed it wasn't her nasty ass going out the door.

    Looks like, from the 'scenes from next wk's show' they are cooking up some Krissi drama. Oh joy. Just in case...I know some people don't even want to hear the teaser stuff shown at the end of an ep -
    They made it look bad for her, so I suspect that means the opposite. argh

    I just watched the most recent episode. Boy that was close. I was glad that Krissi got to stay.

    I want Krissi to make to the final two and then get blown away. I don't even care who the other finalist is, just as long as Krissi is left in the dust.

    I'll just bet that's exactly how it goes down, too. I've kept my SP, but will continue to FF to the end to see who gets the boot until it's her, then I'll RW and watch.

    What the other guy said is how I feel - she is so ugly, even uglier on the inside than the outside and that's saying a lot. I'm not usually like that, especially with other women, but she brings out the worst in me. Now that I think about that, I suppose that's what they're going for. But it seems to me that this means too much to some of these deserving people to have it tarnished by the drama and by keeping her in lieu of others who are more talented and versatile.

    so you're not a fan of actual cooking skill and contests to determine that ?

    you're more interested in manufactured drama ?

    This is a U.S. show. Of course!:D

    Ramsey has always manufactured some kind of drama. Even down to when he announces who is staying or leaving.

    Sooooo - has everybody stopped watching this monstrosity yet? :D

    I just cruised through yesterday's 2hour episode in about 20 minutes, hoping for the best but expecting the worst. Once again, the witch did poorly but somebody else did just a little bit worse.

    I agree about Ramsay and drama but this particular show used to be much more about the cooking and less manufactured drama, except for his little thing of making somebody think they were gone and then turning it around to shock. I could deal with that, but contestant drama is just more b.s. than I had hoped, for this show. I really hoped it would stay more grown up and even-handed.

    That puke bucket is not nearly as good as several who have departed. That's the sad part. She can be a hateful b!tch until the cows come home but if, at least, her cooking was up to par at least I could even feel like she belonged there above others. I'd give her that benefit of that doubt, albeit difficult because I don't like ugly drama.

    Anyhoo - final four! lmao

    I am still enjoying the show. It has it's annoyances, but if I didn't like it I wouldn't watch it, and I certainly wouldn't fast forwarded through it and gloat on a message board.

    I love Luca - and glad he has made it to the final 4. I thought it was really nice of him to give Natasha the garlic - as he said, if he goes home, it won't be because he gave her garlic. He's just adorable.

    Am I the only one who was drooling over the thought of that noodle soup? Or the scallops dish? Or the steak? The Pana cotta, although probably delish, is not my cup-o-tea, but the others were simply mouthwatering!

    I though they did a good job recreating the dishes and even Luca and Natasha called it, not putting it in the blast chiller was dumb, with a capital UMB!
